    We have submitted our latest minor patch to Matrix. You should be able to get it through their online patcher, or through Steam as soon as it's been through their release cycle.

    We wanted to integrate our DLC's with the campaign map for those that have made the purchase, so that's in there. Also a new screen if you own all the new DLCs. We've also included RebBugler's Expanded toolbar mod as part of the patch. As well as a small fix for using Italian language files in mods.

    Also be sure to check out the latest SDK, as we have finally released the map editor. It's not polished at all and really just our build of what was out there for PR already. None of those tools are officially supported, but there's enough people around that have used the map tools that posted questions should get answers. The source for the main Waterloo maps are also included so you can try your hand at modifying the existing maps.

    Thank you everyone for all your support. We are currently working hard on our next title which will remain in the same historical time period. We'll release more details as things are locked down.

    Have a great Memorial Day Weekend! Always remember that this day is to remember those left behind.

    So awesome to see that you guys are continuing to support the game. Im very choosey when it comes to what games I play so when I find one I like, I want to be able to stick with it. And Scourge of War Waterloo has hands down become my favorite game. I cant wait to see what you've got in store for the series and Il for sure be there on release day to buy it.

    Ive got one minor question about downloading the new patch. Im already using Reb Buglers latest expanded toolbar. So if I download the new patch that also contains it, is that in anyway going to mess things up because I already have it?

    At the moment (May 28, 2017) both toolbars are identical. Of course eventually any future updates will be through the WL Modifications thread.

    If I purchase Wavre, does it come with the patch? Or should I patch first, then buy Wavre?

    Thanks!

    Wavre or not, you'll get the latest patch through Steam or the Matrix updater.

    Can it also be downloaded manually? I have removed the Matrix updater - I generally don't like auto-updaters, prefer to do it myself.

    quote]

    It's really great news to hear that SOW series is continuing. I've had my worries as to the series' viability considering how dead its forums (Steam, Matrix, and here) have been despite Waterloo and its DLC being fairly young games. Also, the Wavre release being done in a seemingly hurried manner (no release patch and little things like Grouchy having a generic portrait) also appeared to indicate that the series' future wasn't exactly bright. So, I am very glad that Norbsoft are moving forward with another release.

    Although I see areas where they can be improved upon, I do love these games and will continue to purchase them as long as Norbsoft keeps making them.

    I am little bit surprised (but not disappointed) that the next game is going to be in the "same historical time period" as Waterloo. Another Napoleonic title? What else could it be?

    Hm. I've learned to be cautious when devs make an announcement like this. Nothing was said about it being an SoW title, just that it would be in the same time frame.

    I honestly didn't even know Norbsoft made other titles besides Scourge of War. What other games have they made?

    I'm still on 101 to. Norb said they submitted the new patch to Matrix, but Matrix may be dragging their feet in releasing it.

    I have the Steam version so maybe steam are dragging their feet in releasing it as well. I guess Norb are delaying the patch so they can fix the Cavalry problem but then again they haven't responded to the thread so maybe they are not bothered about the Cavalry problem. :angry:

    Roy, check the announcement again. Work on the patch is finished and its been passed to Matrix for distribution. Norb isn't 'delaying' at all. Steam will update their patch system when Matrix release theirs, all these different parts must function together, so that all customers get access to the patch at the same time.

    Right now I imagine Matrix is arranging with Steam so that both are released at the same time.

    The cavalry problem was only highlighted quite recently. I very much doubt NSD will have had the time to work on it. In fact the 'patch' seems to mostly be a small update to allow the QB, Ligny and Wavre add-ons to function with the SB campaign and the other minor items listed in Norb's second paragraph. No indication of any game functionality changes. That was the only concrete news that was announced.

    Maybe they just forgot to change the numbers, but if you're updated to collectors edition, you're good to go.

    So! hang on my steam version of the game is still saying its 1.01 despite being on auto-update.

    Are we saying its been updated, but that steam forgot to change the version number, or has the steam update not worked. I'm confused.

    Is there no way to install the update directly?
    I've downloaded it but the .exe can;t find the steam version of the game.

    I have SOW Waterloo stating on the Multiplayer page that it is version 1.01. I have all three DLCs installed: Ligny, QB and Wavre. The True Updater informs me that I have the latest version installed. I have an Application filed called UpdateComp-v102 in the Patches folder of the game.

    Given what I have, how can I tell whether I'm updated to version 1.02 ?

    Thanks.

    Check the readme.doc file in the game's main folder. If it says 1.02, then you are updated.
